The current price of Bitcoin at the time of writing was at $3,556, with a market cap of $63 billion. The 24-hour trade volume of BTC was at $6.1 billion. Most of the trade volume comes from Bitcoin perpetual contracts from BitMEX exchange via trade pair BTC/USD.

The Parabolic SAR markers are signifying a bearish trend for BTC prices at the moment. There are no reversal signals being indicated as of now.

The MACD indicator shows a collapsed position, as the MACD and the signal lines are both below the zero lines. The aforementioned lines show the possibility of a crossover soon.

    The entire crypt market is going to zero with only one emerge as successful blockchain. Reasons:
    Bitcoin was designed to be a global ledger, you only need one, just like the world wide web.
    All of the experiments, alt coins derived from Bitcoin. All of them took a path that is no longer legal. Bitcoin was carefully designed to follow all existing regulations hence why it is an immutable chain of digital signatures recorded once, kept forever. This is a requirement by law.
    Finally, Bitcoin is based on economic incentives as the chain scales up, miners compete for lower fees as they are able to accept bigger blocks with more volume for less. None of the other consensus mechanism are based on economic competition. They don’t work, they can’t scale and it cannot compete with Bitcoin on cost.

Litecoin [LTC] posted massive gains and came out as the biggest winner among altcoins as the week came to an end. The digital coin led the altcoin pack towards another bull run.

The latest pump, however, drove the crypto-asset’s price over $100-mark for the second time this year. Subsequently, the silver coin took over EOS to secure its position as the fifth largest crypto-asset by market cap.

As the crypto market started embracing green, many analysts in the space are of the opinion that the “altseason is upon us”. With the latest upswing, LTC became the fourth coin in the top ten with a three-digit valuation after Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], and Bitcoin Cash [BCH].

At press time, the coin was priced at $103.4 after surging by 7.93% over the last 24 hours. LTC registered a market cap of $6.40 billion and a 24-hour trading volume of $6.14 billion. Additionally, the digital coin rallied by 17.52% over the past week.

Litecoin was trading highest on Coineal via the trading pair LTC/BTC, accounting for a volume of 11.98%. The crypto-asset exchange was followed by EXX, which held 8.48% of the trading volume via LTC/USDT.



The upcoming Litecoin second halving event, scheduled for August 2019, and institutional adoption of the crypto were attributed to the series of bull domination this year.

Litecoin crashed soon after June 2018 and hit the lowest point at $30 earlier this year. The coin’s market recovery was resisted by bears as it was juggling within the range of $85-$90 before breaking the much-anticipated $100-mark.
